Opus Leverages Deep Industrial Expertise on 1.2M Square Foot Spec

​Opus, collaborating with AEW Capital Management, L.P. in a joint venture partnership, is bringing its industrial expertise to a new Chicago suburb – Joliet, Ill. – with a 1.2-million-square-foot speculative building in the desirable I-80 corridor submarket.

Opus is developing this state-of-the-art speculative industrial building near intermodal transport, including quick access to Interstates 55 and 80 and the BNSF and Union Pacific railroads. It will be ideal for up to two e-commerce or intermodal logistics operations with 500,000 square foot leases or a single user. The building will feature 36-foot clear height, a cross-dock configuration, LED lighting, an ESFR (Early Suppression Fast Response) sprinkler system and expandable docks and parking.

Construction began in spring 2017 with completion in summer 2018
